RateBeer.com -- Correct Liberty Brewing Summ!t IPALiberty Brewing Summ!t IPA

Summ!t IPA is in the style of an American Imperial IPA. It predominantly uses a new variety of hop from the States called Summit. It is a dwarf variety that grows on a low trellis and has to be hand-picked, because the conventional harvesting methods donít work on this growing system. The result is a hop that doesnít get bruised, therefore preserving the essentially clean characters of the hop as it was on the plant.

The beer itself is 8.3%abv and is calculated to have 125IBU. For the purposes of not overstating the bitterness I have rounded this down to 75IBU. I used Golden Promise malt as a base with light and dark caramel specialty malts. To help flavour the beer I used Centennial and Simcoe hops to give a little more depth in flavour and aroma. A very small amount of Riwaka was also used to help sharpen the edge of the palate.
